The Bangladesh Premier League has been very closely matched this season and except for the Dhaka Dynamites, no team has been able to open up a lead for itself. There have also been a few teams that have underperformed and left their teams a bit disappointed. Two of those, Sylhet Sixers and Comilla Victorians, will be playing against each other in this match.
The Sylhet Sixers have won just one out of their three matches so far while the Comilla Victorians have won two out of their four. This start does not leave them out of the running by any means but the need to get the balance right is apparent for both teams.
The Sylhet Sixers have been quite disappointing in the BPL so far. Their top order has been quite woeful and they seem to be dependent on just one man for the runs. That man is Nicholas Pooran, of course, He put on another show of incredible hitting to score 72 and bring some sort of respectability to Sylhet Sixers defeat against the Dhaka Dynamites.
For a side that also has David Warner, Liton Das, Nasir Hossain, and Sabbir Rahman in its lineup, this lack of runs must be very troubling.
The bulk of the blame must lie with the local Bangladeshi players. David Warner scored a fifty and helped one game while Liton Das, Sabbir Rahman, and Nasir Hossain have struggled to get bat on ball.
We don’t see how it is going to be possible for Nicholas Pooran to continue to bat so low in the order when he is the only person scoring runs for the Sylhet Sixers. One of the other batsmen must start scoring runs as well otherwise the Sixers are going to struggle in the BPL.
They are going to be playing against a tough side in the Comilla Victorians who have some pretty good bowlers and a strong batting lineup themselves.
The lack of runs has also made it difficult for the Sylhet Sixers bowlers to be as effective as they would like. They just don’t have the runs to keep the pressure on the batsmen and even when they do restrict the opposition batting first, the batsmen can’t finish it off.
Sandeep Lamichhane has been excellent so far and the addition of Sohail Tanvir is going to help too. With Taskin Ahmed picking up wickets regularly, the Sylhet Sixers bowling should be able to do the job if they can get the support they need from the batting.
David Warner, Liton Das, ADS Fletcher , Afif Hossain, Sabbir Rahman, Nicholas Pooran, Alok Kapali, S Tanvir, Nabil Samad, Taskin Ahmed, Al-Amin Hossain.
Comilla Victorians were one of the favorites coming into this season of the Bangladesh Premier League. They were pipped to be one of the sides to back early and is easy to see why. They are blessed with talent from top to bottom but have been struggling to get their act together.
Tamim Iqbal, Evin Lewis, Imrul Kayes, and Anamul Haque make a very strong top-order. Tamim Iqbal is a legend in Bangladesh cricket while Evin Lewis is easily among the most destructive batsmen in the world. Neither of them has been able to hit form and get the Comilla Victorians off to strong starts.
There were a few changes made in the side as Liam Dawson and Thisara Perera were brought in to give the side better balance. Both the players bowl and bat, presumably providing the Victorians with a lot more options.
Thisara Perera showed his important immediately as he smashed an incredible 74 off just 26 deliveries with 8 sixes. It was hitting of the highest order and is going o make the entire BPL sit up and take notice. Perera also picked up one wicket while bowling.
Liam Dawson did not have the same success in the match as he was out cheaply and went for 34 runs in his 2.4 overs, giving up the crucial match winning hit in the last over.
The loss against the Chittagong Vikings in the last match was heartbreaking and would have hurt the Comilla Victorians. We believe that the changes they made are good for the side and make it stronger in the long run.
There are still plenty of matches to go till the playoffs start to come on the horizon and hopefully, the Comilla Victorians would have got their act together by then.
Tamim Iqbal, Shamsur Rahman, Anamul Haque, Imrul Kayes, SMSK Afridi, Thisara Perera, LA Dawson, Mohammad Saifuddin, Wahab Riaz, Mahedi Hasan, Ziaur Rahman.

The Bangladesh Premier League 2019 match between the Sylhet Sixers and Comilla Victorians will be played at the Sylhet International Cricket Stadium, Sylhet. This is going to be the second match played on this strip and we are hoping for some more life in it than what we saw in Dhaka.
A flatter pitch with more pace in it could allow for some more high scoring games, although, Bangladeshi pitches always have something in it for the spinners as well.
These are two closely matches sides which have been underperforming in the BPL up until now. The Sylhet Sixers have an in-form Nicholas Pooran, are playing at home, and have David Warner at the top of the order. The Comilla Victorians, though, look stronger after the addition of Thisara Perera to the side.
Back the Comilla Victorians to win.
